This song is TRAD, ie a folk-song, collected originally in Dorset, amongst other places. I haven’t tried to play the tune yet to check, but, with slight variations in melody, it was a big hit in GB in the ‘50’s for Ronnie Ronalde, a music-hall entertainer who specialised in whistling as well as singing, and who ended his days running his own hotel on my native Guernsey.
